Hilary Duff is young, beautiful, and talented, but she's also a mom, and she's prone to all the insecurities and guilt that all moms face (she even tried Tinder!). Recently, she sat down with Redbook magazine to talk about her life and what's to come in 2016.

Though she may have a successful career, she admits that it comes with a price, summarizing the guilt that most professional women feel: "It's hard to say that you really can have it all. I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You're missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I'm really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty." Preach, lady!

And she thinks the way magazines and photographers obsess over post-baby bodies is stupid, too. She tells this story of an event that happened shortly after her pregnancy:
"After I had Luca, I went out to, like, the breast-pump store--I was still huge--and I just had a comfortable outfit on. And the next day [in the tabloids] it was like, "Hilary debuts post-baby bod!" And I was like, "That's not a debut! That's an errand!" It was such a happy time that honestly I didn't care; it wasn't until later that I realized how mean and invasive it was."

It's refreshing to hear a star speak so candidly about pregnancy and motherhood -- do you agree with her about having it all?
